Hey Cupcake - Soft and Shimmery!

It's time to pull out your pastel shimmer chalks and start coloring! Yep, they're great for a soft shimmery cupcake! Do you agree?
I love black and white and pink and the shimmery grey cupcake wrapper is just the perfect blend. :) The shell  cardstock was stamped with the extraordinary background in blush (or was it the other way around? One is just slightly darker than the other and I keep confusing which is which until I use them. lol!). A little washi tape from the summer collection was added as well as the banner die cut from onyx gingham and the onyx bakers twine was wrapped around. The cupcake oval/scalloped element was popped up for dimension. The cupcake was entirely colored with the pastel shimmer chalk. It's a great way to get started in coloring tools because it's so economical. The chalks will last forever. :)

It's a soft and pretty birthday card. What do you think?

Thanks for popping by! All card supplies are available on my secure shopping site:

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Beautimus - I need to get out my chalks again, would be a nice change from copics.

Chalks scare me! But your card is beautiful. Maybe I'll get brave someday and try them.
